I am the Badgers Lead Teacher! You may recognize me as the former Jungle Cubs teacher; this will be my fifth year working at Martin Luther. I missed working with all the awesome children here at and decided to return after teaching preschool from a year at a school for early childhood children dealing with trauma. I have my Bachelors of Science in Education from the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater and have been teaching since 2009. I started my career as an Art Teacher, but fell in love with Early Childhood and decided to pursue that avenue further. I still love to paint and create in my free time! I live in Oregon with my son, Gray; my toy poodle, Pipen; and my cat, Marshmallow.
We welcome your school age child to the Badgers classroom, located towards the front of the building. The Badgers class has plenty of play and learning centers in the classroom. This includes a SMART board, as well as outside time, and access to our gym, computer lab/library and an awesome game room. The Badgers class offers both before and after school care, as well care on days when there is no school. Homework time is allotted for children in our school age program. Curriculum is centered upon building social and cognitive skills through games, activities and other types of fun, and active learning.
